A Dry, Quiet April

Alabama has now gone seven days without any rainfall, much less severe weather, here in the middle of April. There is a slight chance for a brief shower Saturday, but that will amount to little, if anything. It now looks like we very well may go another week or so before rain chances return to the state.

The reason for this that there has been a persistent high pressure ridge over the Eastern United States. The prospects for needed rain do seem to increase toward the end of the month.
